I've tried Type 1, and it felt like I was faking. I tried Type 4, and I felt like it wasn't ok to be goofy.
So maybe I'm type 3. Why? Well, I have a good deal of the facial elements.
As you can see in the photo below (that guy is now 8.5!), I used to have a point in my eyebrow. It's since been threaded away. This, along with the swiftly rising eyebrow, is characteristic of Type 3; according to Carol Tuttle, ALL Type 3's have this trait (though other types have it too... sort of confusing). You can also see the triangular shape of my jaw, and the lines connecting my nostrils with the side of my mouth, which are more clearly defined in a Type 3.
I'm not sure what type my eyes are, since they seem to turn down at the corners...
I've analyzed my face a LOT in this process. It's kind of annoying.
With my current hairstyle, I am DEFINITELY not living my truth, as they say. I have kept it long out of laziness, and because of encouragement to do so by friends that I look so good in it. I've said before that I'm pretty sure I'm just a short haired kind of girl (I don't call myself a woman EVER, so maybe I'm Type 1 after all). At this point, I'm extremely hesitant to cut my hair because I don't want to be WRONG about my type.
But it's just hair; it will grow back.
But oh the money (Type 3's have a hard time spending money... I'm pretty sure I was raised this way since my dad sometimes seems like he survived the Depression)..
This resonated with me as I searched for Type 3 hairstyles. It's from Fabulous After 40.
I tend to think of myself as scatterbrained, another reason I think I could be T1. I pick things up and put them down...but forget where I put them when I need them. But that last bullet, about over-committing, totally and completely resonates. I often think I'm frazzled because I don't plan enough time for things, but really, it's because I try to do too many things at once.
So I tried Type 3. It's really tough since my hair is so off, and I don't really have any makeup to speak of. The ladies on the T3 unofficial board say the colors are great, but the pattern is off for a T3.
